Being on the Board for a nonprofit organization has a tremendous level of responsibility that goes beyond just showing up for meetings and passing resolutions. It requires an understanding of what being a Board member entails: your duties, the organization’s expectations, your legal exposure, the role you’ll be expected to play, the time and money commitment, etc. It also requires some due diligence and soul searching on your part. Use “The Nonprofit Guide to Effective Board Membership” as a best practice resource for yourself and other nonprofit leaders in your organization.
